"Easy to install, did both front and rear in about half an hour with my 13 year old son assisting. No special tools required. Absolutely wonderful ride as compared to stock or worn out shocks. flatter cornering, excellent return rate and dampening. Easy and inexpensive way to love your vanagon again." posted by: vanagon guy on November 8, 2010 view all 2 reviews
